OVO - A space, studio and gallery where we strive to nurture the singular vision of many. Resident Artist, Richard Marr, has been creating art since the 1970s. He received his Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Chicago in 1983. This Gallery is a dream Richard had and finally, together with his wife/life partner, Caro Kalb-Marr, OVO has been born.

ANOTHER PERSPECTIVEWhat Good Are The Arts? by John Carey "The real question that we need to keep in mind is how does any person's love of art affect his or her attitude towards human beings? All too often reverence for the divine Mozart or a heavenly Vermeer tends to reduce the rest of us to interchangeable extras on life's stage; unimportant and quite expendable. This is a monstrous way to regard people. It is not what you paint on a piece of canvas...but what painting on a piece of canvas can do for you. Such focused acts of attention may, for instance, develop qualities of character like self-discipline, patience and delay of immediate gratification."
